I don't know anything about "everybody" calling you an egotist; I never have. I just consider you to be annoyingly impatient and occasionally -- and unnecessarily -- rude to the staff and volunteers. Life is too short; lighten up some. You're going to give yourself a coronary.

I'm the most hated person on this section. Nobody likes my items, and the only ones that get reviewed are garbage like "Pass the Line".

I'm sorry, but I'm not going to indulge a grown man who's having a pity party.

The only people who are disliked here are the people who consistently upload copyrighted materials and our resident nuisance doowopbob. And I doubt any one really "hates" them.

You have over 900 subscribers on Youtube and the items you've posted here on the Archive have been downloaded hundreds of times. Count your blessings.

You should also realize that people have different tastes. Just because you like something doesn't mean another person will.

BTW, if the only reason you're posting items is to get favorable reviews and have people tell you how great you are, I would say that is slightly egotistical. I'm not trying to be mean, just stating my opinion.

I upload items because I want more people to know they exist. I wish the archives that hold these shows would upload them, but it seems they cannot be bothered. The only reason I want reviews is so more people can realise this section exists on the Internet Archive, which is also why I review other peoples items....I am a terrible reviewer, but if it gets an item (regardless of who uploaded it) a dozen more downloads, then I have been successful.

That's a laudable aspiration. Focus on that, and you'll do well. Have a pleasant evening.

I like you Matt. You have been a cornerstone of IA since the begining but as MC said you must be patient.

Your Highness,
Your efforts are of great value, but I personally have little to add in the form of reviews. A rubber stamped "I like it" would be quickly boring.
To partially repay your very entertaining contributions I am happy to help you with content. If you require more visuals, such as the smokestack request, it would be a pleasure to film other objects or events.
Just remember that some of your subjects are neither wordsmiths or speedy.
